Daniel Brühl, Albrecht Schuch and director Ed Berger talk making “All Quiet on the Western Front”

Today, we thought of treating you again with amazing guests. That’s why in this week’s episode, we welcome actors Daniel Brühl & Albrecht Schuch as well as director Edward Berger to the show. Together, they made Netflix’s new film All Quiet on the Western Front (2022).

If the name Daniel Brühl doesn’t ring a bell – which it should –, then here are some films he has been in: Good Bye Lenin! (2003), Inglourious Basterds (2009), Rush (2013), Captain America: Civil War (2016), and The Alienist (2018), only to name a few. You might also know Albrecht from epic films such as System Crasher (2019) or Berlin Alexanderplatz (2020), and Edward from Eden (2022).

In their conversation, Ed chats about

–       finding a cinematic language with the DOP

–       getting through rough days on set

–       telling a story from your POV

–       adapting a novel

–       learnings from shooting battle scenes


… while Daniel & Albrecht talk about

–       what helps them get into the role

–       choosing the right projects

–       the importance of the film’s message

–       acting techniques

–       how directing influenced Daniel’s work as an actor


It’s needless to say that it has been an absolute blast chatting with these three legends. So what are you waiting for? Sit back, relax and listen to our epic chat with Daniel Brühl, Albrecht Schuch & Edward Berger.
